Are there any products (that are within a reasonable price range ) you could recommend that could help get rid of the frizzyiness? I never blow dry my hair but always leave it to dry naturally if that's relevant. The frizz is starting to irritate me, I just want to trim it all off! Also definitely gets much much worse in damp/humid weather
If you embrace the wave in your hair, when its wet put some Oil in it, like Argan . Scrunch it dry with your fists. I put Umberto Giannini stuff on my hair 'Curly Girl' when I want waves with minimum frizz.
I've struggled with frizz for ever & have tried everything under the sun. If I could have got it to go in proper curls I'd have stuck with it but, no, always just mad frizz. Have finally given up & embraced blow dries & tongs. Worse for the hair & a massive hassle but nicer hair.
If you find the miracle product please do post it - I'd love to go back to natural drying & my 'real' hair!
I got sick of buying every product under the sun, so had the Japanese Keratin done a couple of times in Sydney 4 years ago (400 dollars each)
Then read about the amazon one on Mumsnet and tried it (DH did the manual labour) and was blown away. It's a faff to apply but for 8 months of perfect hair, it's worth it.
It's seriously good and left my hair in excellent condition. Not to mention no more straightening irons or hot blow drying, which improves the condition too.
It's also not toxic smelling (smells of pineapple) and so far it has lasted for 8 months, but I religiously only use the recommended type of shampoo/conditioner. I chose this one because it has a lovely smell.
Don't be tempted to put any products in your hair after you'e done it though, salt (sodium) and sulphates will strip your hair of the keratin and it won't last. I learned that 4 years ago the hard way.
Thanks for your replies everyone! Never heard of the keratin kit things but they sound like they will do the trick, I just don't like having straight hair However I'll try Cyb's first post, and also the John Frieda stuff that a few mentioned and if all fail then keratin kit it is!
